    The only initial concern I had was the reliability of Aerospaceweb.org, but after doing a bit of digging, I found this page, which satisfactorily demonstrates the expertise of the authors of the website. Excellent work on this article! Parsecboy (talk) 01:35, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Supercruise speed[edit]

The Mach 1.58 supercruise speed is given by multiple sources, including Aronstein's book. Also, I don't see why we need to round to one decimal place. The F-22's supercruise speed is also given in two decimal places. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.228.145.163 (talk) 08:20, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for adding a source. Now wasn't that easy? - BilCat (talk) 08:50, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Why "Y"?[edit]

The "YF" designation should be explained. The 'F' is obvious (Fighter), but the 'Y' is not. I asked an AF Col. what the 'Y' meant, and he said that it simply means "one step beyond 'X'" (experimental). Of course, that would not qualify as a proper WP source. Can somebody find a source and clarify this in the article?  —Thanks in advance, E:71.20.250.51 (talk) 03:08, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
